Hybrid AM platform created at AFRC

The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) at the University of Strathclyde has integrated laser metal deposition (LMD) technology within a CNC machining centre, creating a unique platform that is the first of its kind in Scotland, and one of very few across the world.

Offering an affordable way for SMEs to embrace additive manufacturing, the LMD hybrid platform demonstrates that those with existing CNC technologies can retrofit their machinery to accommodate additive manufacturing at a reduced cost compared with off-the-shelf solutions. The AFRC is hosting a free workshop on machining and additive manufacturing on 28-29 August 2019. To find out more and book a space visit the web address shown.
